2004 Volkswagen Touareg V6 AWD 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
To start with I love this truck! I tis a great design good to drive. The reason for this review is the total lack of any sort of reliability with the unit. Brakes @ $850.00 per axcel I have replace 7 times. Tires maybe 25000 on a good set. Electrical system is absolutely the worst I have ever dealt with. Drive Train, hads to replace the drive shaft linkage at 34500 and the factory wouldn't cover the cost to repair. I cannot tell you how much this vehicle has cost me to own. Never again... Watch Out!
couldn't agree more. I would add that someone contemplating repairing, DO NOT GO TO DEALER, find independent mechanic.
Costs are often half to 1/3 of VW dealter.
VW screws their customers for parts, buy aftermarket whenever you can. Why put the same crap back in?
